Kathy & Jon - 25 days ago

Dear Maura, So much of your eulogy was very familiar, and rang true to me, I was one of the privileged to always feel so welcome, by your whole family, but especially your mom, in your house on Glencairn’s “better block”. I DO, however, take issue with Nitai’s comment on your mom’s cooking. Having eaten many dinners at your house, I can attest that she was, in fact, a very good cook. At least back then. ..I cherish my memories of our closely intertwined lives growing up, and that of your parents who figure prominently in them. Hugs from all of us to all of you, Kathy & Jon & Andrea & Ally

Gloria Kadonoff - 28 days ago

Dear Respitz family, My path in education crossed with Chava's years ago when she helped a student from the Psychiatric Centre make the transition into an elementary school, into my special education class. Chava stayed in my room with the student for some time, quietly explaining and helping the child to understand and to feel comfortable in their new setting. She returned a week or so later just to check in with the student and to hear how they were faring. Her commitment to and care for the student was obvious and memorable. It was a great pleasure for me to interact with her professionally for she was a master teacher. I extend sympathy to the whole Respitz family. Gloria Kadonoff
